Realistically it's best if I just don't think about it, it's never gonna happen!

I've just spent the past half hour concentrating on the tips and techniques discussed on Sunday and it has made a very noticeable improvement in tone, dexterity and stamina - me thumb barely hurts at all.
Thanks Owen & Geoff!

Double bass - it's big, it's clever and it does impress people.

Bigguns: Michael Poller carved double bass (Boris) 1950's double bass - probably Musima (Jayne), Eminence EUB (Barbara)

Littleuns: Musicman Sterling - Italia Rimini- Fender ABG

Boxes: Markbass, Euphonic Audio and Hartke amps - BigE MA45 (THE daddy!) - Bill Fitzmaurice Omni 10.5 - Acoustic Image Coda - Roland Microcube

Fueled by proper I.P.A. and scrumpy
